Dec. 29th, 2010 Williams first Barber cut

We decided to take William in to Barber Andy for his first official haircut. We've trimmed a few hairs here and there with our clippers but decided he needed to experience the barber shop (shouldn't every little boy?). Barber Andy is where William's Grandpa Bruce has gone for many years to get his hair cut. William wasn't into the whole say the least.

Could we have tortured him enough?

I tried bribing him with some m&m's...that didn't even work.

It's a little difficult to catch an almost two year old for a picture but you can kinda see the cut from this one. We think he looks like a little boy from a Norman Rockwell picture.

Dec. 28th, 2010 William's Christmas'

William is such a lucky boy when it comes to Christmas. He's got three sets of grandpas and grandmas which of course means opening presents three times (o: Curtis and I don't have to get him anything and he's got plenty by the time he's done! He enjoyed Christmas a lot more this year and it was fun to watch his expressions (and hear the sounds he would make) as he opened each gift.

We spent Christmas morning at the Stroh house with humongous cinnamon rolls for breakfast and some good family time, Christmas day was spent with Grandma Marsha and Grandpa Bruce and the VanOrsow clan, the day after Christmas was spent with the Gant family, Grandma Kim and Grandpa Pile drove up from CA and arrived two days after Christmas, and then Grandma Loretta and Grandpa Terry stopped by on their way home to Hermiston on the 28th. It was a busy couple days! We are truly blessed with all the family we have.

William LOVED the little dog Grandma Marsha gave him Christmas day.

Dec. 8th, 2010 Getting ready for Christmas

William is quite the little helper these days. Christmas will be a lot different this year with a toddler to share it with (o: These last few days we've had fun making sugar cookies and decorating the Christmas tree...

Makin' cookies with mom.

This is hard work Mom! How do you get them to look so good?

I think he had more fun squishing the dough between his fingers. Regardless, he had fun. And he even helped make a big heart shaped one for his daddy.

Then we decorated the tree...
Helpin' Mom string the lights

Just for kicks, here's a comparison this year to last year...This year instead of just staring at the lights, he wanted to kiss them. We'll see what next year brings...
